In controlling roof rats with rodenticides, a sharp distinction must be made between control in and around buildings and control away from buildings such as in landfills and dumps, along drainage ditches and streams, in sewer water evaporation ponds, and in parks. Rats can also transmit rat bite fever through bacteria in their mouth. Traps may be nailed to beams or studs and secured to pipes with wires. The 5 to 8 young in the litter develop rapidly, growing hair within a week. Proper ladder safety is a must, as is roof safety.
